House to unveil Iraq withdrawal bill

Congressional Progressive Caucus chairwomen Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.) and Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and Out of Iraq Caucus Chairwoman Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) will tout their legislation tomorrow calling for a withdrawal of U.S. forces in Iraq within six months.

The House lawmakers are scheduled to hold a press conference on their new bill, which would prohibit permanent military bases in Iraq and provide economic aid for the Iraqi government.

The legislation would fully fund the withdrawal of troops and military contractors.
